Many copies of the books contain labels autographed by Kasparov. The Modern Chess series covers chess opening developments in the s, all of Kasparov's five World Championship matches with Karpov, and his other games with Karpov.
My Great Predecessors received lavish praise from some reviewers including Nigel Short ,  while attracting criticism from others for historical inaccuracies and analysis of games directly copied from unattributed sources. Reviewing My Great Predecessors Part I , chess historian Edward Winter said, "The absence of, even, a basic bibliography is shocking in a work which claims to be 'Garry Kasparov's long-awaited definitive history of the World Chess Championship', and a lackadaisical attitude to basic academic standards and historical facts pervades the book.
International Master John L. Watson said that Predecessors "must be recommended as an ambitious, interesting work by I believe the greatest player in history. It clearly delights and inspires some of its readership regardless of its weaknesses, and is a book that most players will want to own, if only for the story-like narration of events and chess developments. For these reasons alone, I would call it a significant book, perhaps even one of this year's best.
But for some reason we have been led to believe that Predecessors is a masterpiece, belonging to the class of great books if not transcending them. In reality it is something less grandiose: Reviewing My Great Predecessors Part I , International Master William John Donaldson said the book "represents good value if one lowers one's expectations and views it as a very reasonably priced hardback game collection rather than the definitive historical guide to the early World Champions.
It is too bad that Kasparov and Plisetsky didn't hire Winter to fact check the book. It could have been much better and one hopes more care is taken with upcoming volumes. Through suggestions on the book's website, some of the book's criticisms were addressed in following editions and translations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Retrieved Fischer is almost equally well-known for his temperamental behaviour away from the board, as his play on it. He made extreme demands of all those around him including tournament organisers. When these demands were not met he often refused to play.
The match against Spassky required the intervention of no less than Henry Kissinger to smooth things over. After this he more or less gave up chess, playing only once, a 'return' match against Spassky in In this book, a must for all serious chessplayers, Kasparov analyses deeply Fischer's greatest games and assesses the legacy of this great American genius.

It was a dreary dismal day here, cold and rainy and receiving the set made it feel like the sun had come out. Opening the package was better than Christmas.
To cut a long story short, this set is the finest I've ever seen or even held in my hands. Both sets are absolutely beautiful.
I know I'm going to enjoy the Zagreb set. The new chessmen look great sitting on it, and I'm sure it will give me hours of pleasure playing the greatest game of all! I may not play like a grandmaster, but I will feel like one. Thank you for your help and prompt attention. I knew from the pictures that they were beautiful but they are much more than this: I must say that they are gorgeous! I felt I was treated as if one of the family in the way the order was taken and delivered.
I'm a very happy customer! The pictures looked great, but they don't do this set justice. I can't believe there is a finer classic Staunton chess set out there.
It is truly beautiful. Thanks" G. It is a magnificent set. It is rare to find items crafted so well and I will certainly recommend The House of Staunton to others. The quality and workmanship for a set in this price range is amazing. I am looking forward to my next purchase. Was struck by overall superior quality and weight. The Rosewood is quite beautiful. More than I expected. Thanks for accommodating extra queens. They are beautiful.
Thank you for a fine product.
Worth every penny. You've done something that I've always wanted to do: Well done. It's so exquisite, I can't stop looking at it.
Though the pictures on your website are beautiful, they don't do justice to actually seeing them in person. I've been looking for a red-lacquered chess set for quite sometime, and this is the most beautiful I've ever seen. Thank you, also, for meticulously wrapping each piece.
My brother is going to love his first real chess set. You are the best. But you know that already. Keep me in the loop on how you plan to overtake all the crap plastic sets out there. You were very patient and accommodating during my selection process. Now if I could only learn how to win a game It is massive, heavy, elegant and high-class.
A true work of art.
